To get rid of a cold quickly, there are three simple ways that do not involve taking expensive drugs. They were listed by a British general practitioner and TV host Sarah Jarvis in an interview with Express.
According to her, the first method is a spray for the throat, which creates a protective barrier against germs. “The cold penetrates into the body through the mucous membranes – mainly through the mouth and nose. Studies have shown that a cold spray can halve the duration of cold symptoms,” Jarvis explained.
Secondly, the doctor advises that Echinacea can be used for treatment. However, it cannot be used for children. According to the expert, medicine does not yet have unambiguous data, which parts of the plant and to what extent it should be used.
And finally, Jarvis recommended taking vitamin C or products that contain it: citrus, pepper, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and potatoes.
To avoid the spread of the disease, the doctor advised to wash your hands often with warm water and soap, and to sneeze and cough in disposable napkins, quickly throwing them away.
